CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- September 3, 2013

National CineMedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCMI) (the Company), the managing member and
owner of 45.1% (prior to this offering) of National CineMedia, LLC (NCM LLC),
the operator of the largest digital in-theatre network in North America, today
announced that one of its founding members, Regal Entertainment Group and its
affiliates (Regal), intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions,
2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock in a registered underwritten
public offering. Regal has granted the underwriter an option for 30 days to
purchase up to 300,000 additional shares of the Company’s common stock to
cover over-allotments, if any. These shares of common stock will be issued to
Regal upon redemption of a like number of NCM LLC common membership units that
were issued to Regal. Such redemption of NCM LLC common membership units will
take place immediately prior to the closing of the underwritten public
offering. The Company will not receive any proceeds from the sale. Giving
effect to the offering, the ownership of NCM, Inc. in NCM LLC will increase to
between 46.7% (without over-allotments) and 47.0% (with over-allotments).

BofA Merrill Lynch is acting as the sole book-runner for the offering. The
underwriter may offer the shares of common stock from time to time in
transactions on the NASDAQ Global Select Market, in the over-the-counter
market or through negotiated transactions at market prices or at negotiated
prices.

The proposed offering is being made solely by means of a prospectus supplement
and accompanying prospectus. Copies of the prospectus supplement and

statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. This press release
does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any
